Greek Foreign Ministry to persist with WWII reparations claims

The Foreign Ministry repeated on Friday its position that Greece has not given up on claiming Second World War reparations from Germany.

The statement came after German Chancellor Angela Merkel said in a news conference that Berlin had a different interpretation of the law to Athens and considered the matter closed.

The Greek government considers that Germany is at least liable for a loan the Bank of Greece was forced to provide the Nazi regime during the war.

During his visit to Athens on Thursday, Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble said that we must examine exactly what happened in Greece but insisted that Greece had agreed to waive any demands when it signed in 1953 the London Agreement, which dealt with Germanys debts.
